    Putin is his buddy and role model? Didn't Putin downed KLM jet not so long ago and didn't Putin assassinate opposition leaders? The idiot rates Vlady with an A - hey what's wrong with you people?
    Newsweek should have a picture of trumps rear end as part of his face with a ladder showing the GOP establishment climbing in his rectum one after the other -
    markets are going to crash if trump becomes reality - the US will be trumped up for a very, very long time

    the good thing is really that Trump repeated it several times - and Hillary will follow through.

    Blitzer asked trump regarding birther movement -
    Trump responded and asked : who started it? and Trump said Hillary started it.

    He is stupid enough to open his mouth - does he not know that there is something like fact checking.
    The scary thing about Trump and his followers is that facts don't matter - that's how Aldolf "worked it"

    The US will go back to coal and he'll make America great again - American Idiots at their best

    “Eighty-three percent of U.S. semiconductor industry sales are into markets outside the U.S., so access to overseas markets is imperative to the long-term strength of our industry,” Neuffer said. “The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a landmark trade agreement that would tear down myriad barriers to trade with countries in the Asia-Pacific. The TPP is good for the semiconductor industry, the tech sector, the American economy, and the global economy. Congress should approve it.”

  • Apple drove entire foundry sales increase at TSMC in 2015
    Driving home just how important Apple’s foundry business is, TSMC’s foundry sales increased by $1,464 million last year while its sales to Apple jumped by $1,990 million, representing more than 100% of TSMC’s total foundry sales increase in 2015. As a result, without Apple, TSMC’s foundry sales would have declined by 2% last year, eight points less than the 6% increase it logged when including Apple.
    IC Insights’ April Update to the 2016 McClean Report, to be released later this week, includes IC Insights’ final 2015 top 50 company rankings for total semiconductor and IC sales as well as rankings of the leading suppliers of DRAM, flash memory, MPUs, IC foundry services, etc.

    Intel Custom Foundry certifies Synopsys tools for 10nm tri-gate process

    Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS) today announced Intel Custom Foundry’s certification of digital and signoff implementation tools from the Synopsys Galaxy Design Platform for Intel’s 10-nanometer (nm) tri-gate process technology. Synopsys and Intel Custom Foundry employed a PowerVR GT7200 GPU design from Imagination Technologies to develop the reference flow. Customers of Intel Custom Foundry now have access to the 10nm system-on-chip (SoC) design methodology based on the technology-leading Synopsys Galaxy Design Platform, anchored by IC Compiler II.

    Key components and features of the Galaxy Design Platform certified and enabled for Intel’s 10-nm process include:

    IC Compiler II place and route: Seamless support for the advanced, multi-patterning requirements and optimization technologies to maximize the benefits of advanced tri-gate processes
    PrimeTime timing signoff: SPICE-level correlation with support for Advanced Waveform Propagation to model tri-gate effects
    StarRC extraction: Multi-patterning, full color-aware variation modeling and 3D tri-gate modeling
    IC Validator signoff physical verification: In-Design, automated DRC repair and metal fill within IC Compiler II; and layout-vs.-schematic (LVS) signoff
    HSPICE, FineSim SPICE and CustomSim simulation: Tri-gate active and passive device modeling via common model and passive device model interfaces

    Architected around a modern, low-memory footprint and natively multi-threaded infrastructure, IC Compiler II can easily handle very large designs with proven capacity for over 10-million instances. IC Compiler II delivers industry-leading, ultra-high-capacity automated design planning, unique clock-building technology and patented global-analytical optimization that result in a highly convergent design implementation flow.

    All the foundries have to be extremely open due to the way things are built (ie, the tools). Intel is much more closed (as it uses it's own tools - for the most part).

    Intel uses its own "tools" ?

  • semi_equip_junkie semi_equip_junkie Apr 22, 2016 1:09 PM Flag

    Intel has much more transparency into what they offer than the competition does.

    I agree -
    there is a reason TSMC is not breaking down the numbers for 20 nm planar and 16nm FinFet -
    he does not get it

    according to ASML Xpoint will go into production by end of the year

    TSMC's Q1 2016 revenues down 18%

    They are also spending huge on CapEx while their earnings are significantly less than their CapEx.

    they don't have much of a choice....
    SMIC and UMC are eating their (legancy 28. 40, 65 nm) bread and butter business while Samsung is giving them a run for the money ( Samsung can always fall back on DRAM and NAND)

    TSMC officially maintained its 2016 capex but the Q1 2016 run rate was way below 2016 projections

    It's all about huge fix cost - IOW get volume up quickly.
    Even with declining PC market Intel has the advantage of manufacturing CPU's which use the same tool set. So CPU can carry the major burden to recover fix cost - that's a completely different scenario for the foundries (TSMC).
    Not only equipment cost are skyrocketing also the cost for a new design.
    I think Intel can make far, far more profits with NAND and cross point memory (compared to APUs) which both are or will be part of the "server infrastructure" -
    the ARM camp relies on third parties

    revenue from 16/20 nm was 23% in Q1 which is 1% less compared to to Q4 2015 -
    it was 16% in Q1 2015
    not too impressive IMO while Intel started shipping 14 nm FPGA's

    Intel (Infineon) designed an LTE chip and outsourced the manufacturing to TSMC - while clowns like Nenni were laughing (Intel using TSMC) is shows:

    1.) Intel can design a "chip" very successfully and profitable while outsourcing the manufacturing -
    in this case Intel is basically fabless (perhaps there were also some agreements Intel had to honor when aquiring Infineon)
    yes G 61 - it's not all about the fabs....
    2.) The 7360 is targeting (Apple's) high end phones ....
    for years the bluered skunk, Ashfook and G61 complained bitterly that Intel was not capable to integrate the modem -
    it looks like a discrete modem approach is very viable and flexible compared to an integrated solution and perhaps decoupling the modem makes it easier to optimize and improve modem solution
    3.) Though it took some time the Infineon deal is paying off - and also remember Intel picked up Moto's wireless team a couple years ago
